I called the guys at cote-L about useing Duraback
in my engine compartment and they did not reccomend
it cuz of temp, if I remember correctly Herculiner
and Durabak are both good to about 250 degrees.
If you e-mail me, then give me a couple of days i can find information on people that used Herculiner. The company that I work for sells it now. I will ask them if they got a good response from customers or not.
I did my complete engine compartment in a undercoating that I sell. It looks good(you apply it with a shuts gun) It drys hard and is designed for the underbody of european vehicles so it is very durable
Thanks for the response, guys, but I am familiar with how good Hurculiner is so I do not need more accolades. Nor do I wish to get a special undercoating gun to shoot with. My under tub is all Por-15 & DuraBaked.
Just looking for a good, temp resistnat black coating.
My paint dealer sold me an old half full gallon can of DuPont vinyl covering but I fear it won't hold up to heat but it will be excelent for my hardtop as this in more in line with it's purpose.
Well, I can always go back and look at the table full of partial cans of Centari, find a real dark or black one and then clear coat it. It would be nice if I could put something on that had a just a little texture. I've stripped the hood's top down to primer and metal but do not want to spend an extra day sanding and feather edging the underside that a color finish deserves.
Some under coatings have a porous surface. I'm looking for something that will wash well.
